Exactly my point that Sally seemed to miss I was talking about all round athlete, not any achieve,ments in just one sport. Obviously he wasnt the best League player, and obviously he isnt our best boxer, but to achieve such heights in 2 completely different sports holds him pretty damm high.

greatest sportsman ever...!! lol eddie charlton was better. do some research. and bradman, thorpe, fraser, freeman, etc **** on mundine from altitude.

.

Do some research? How about u read properly. How are those u menion better ALL ROUND athletes? They excelled at one sport and one sport only. How about u do some research, Mundine WAS a legitimate World champion. Ottke retired rather than face him, and when he did, that left Mundine the sole WBA World Champ.

mundine has achieved a bit in two sports. hasnt hit any great heights... i believe a whole lot of sports people could do that they just dont. being the best in 2 sports would have me alot more impressed.

Ottke retired because of Mundine how the **** did you come up with that one More like he retired because he didn't want to face other champions in the division like Calzaghe.

Exactly. Mundine was very good at 2 sports (rugby league & boxing) at a high level, but was NOT elite at either of these 2 sports. Funny you should mention Hagler/Hearns. Imagine how petrified Mundine would be if he were in that famous fight against either of those 2 greats. It would be like a grown man teeing off on a scared little boy.

lol, u have no idea.

Being a former world champ and being consistantly rated in the top 5 in the world makes u world class u fool.

And if u play origin, i would consider u one of the elite players in the game at the time.

He was one of the Australia's early dual code rugby internationals. He was a member of the Australian rugby union team, which won the gold medal at the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
Olympic medal recordMen's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]Gold[Only registered and activated users can see links. ][Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Prior to his rugby careers Craig was one of Australia's greatest all-round sportsmen. He won eight consecutive State swimming championships between 1899 and 1906; he appeared in four Sydney premiership winning water polo sides and in 1905 he was a member of the Balmain soccer club which that year won the State premiership.
Craig toured Britain and North America with the 1908-09 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and at the end of that tour won Olympic Gold medal in London in the team captained by [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
On his return to Australia he joined the fledgling code of rugby league along with 13 of his Olympic teammates.
Rugby league career
His club football was played with the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] whom he helped to four premierships between 1915 and 1919.
Craig made his international league debut in the First Test in Sydney on 18 June 1910.
He played in both rugby league Tests against Great Britain in Australia in 1910 and was selected on the 1911 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] tour of Great Britain. He played 31 tour matches and scored 7 tries. He played at second row in all three victorious Tests of the tour.
He returned to representative honors in 1914 playing two Tests when Australia hosted the Great Britain tourists. All up Craig played in 7 rugby league Tests and 35 times for Australia..
Neil Hawke (27 June 1939 - 25 December 2000) was an [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and leading [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
Born in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Hawke quickly developed as a natural all-round sportsman who excelled in cricket, football and golf and made his senior Australian rules football debut for [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (SANFL) club [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in August 1957. Hawke stamped himself as a future champion when in his third game he kicked 15 goals for Port against [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] before being surprisingly dropped two weeks later.
Hawke quit Port at the end of 1957 to try his hand in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and made his [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (WAFL) debut in 1958 for [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], playing 42 matches and kicking 157 goals in two seasons with the Royals, including East Perth's 1958 and 1959 premierships. Hawke topped the WAFL's goalkicking list in 1959 with 114 goals, represented Western Australia against [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and gained local fame for apparently being the first footballer to perfect the drop punt over a long distance. Previously, the drop punt was only used over short distances on wet days but Hawke's innovation was said to have revolutionised the game in Western Australia.
Fresh from his success on the football field, Hawke also made an impact on the cricket field as a medium-fast swing bowler with an unusual "crab-like'" action, a capable lower-order batsman and a sound fieldsman. He became the first (and still the only) person to have represented both South Australia and Western Australia in Australian Rules football and cricket. His cricket also developed enough for him to make his Test debut on 15 February 1963 in the Fifth [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] against [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], scoring 14 and recording match figures of 2/89.
Hawke was a member of the 1963/64 Sheffield Shield winning South Australian team, and toured England (where he qualified for the British amateur golf championship [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in 1964 and the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in 1965. The West Indies tour found Hawke in top form as he took 24 wickets at 21.83 in the Test series, including match figures of 10-115 in the third Test at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], as well as making his highest score, an unbeaten 45 at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Back in Australia in 1965/66, Hawke recorded his best innings figures of 7/105 against England in the third Test at the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
